1. Are you ready?

Now that you’ve survived Conditionals, we can move on to In-and-Out Games. These games binary with only two possibilities for each element relating a specific trait. Every element is “yes or no” for a series of things. So, these games will involve something happening or not happening. The player will be on the team or she won’t be.

Because they are yes or no in their orientation, they are loaded with if then type statements (why we just studied conditionals). You need to get as much information as possible to solve these games in order to narrow down possibilities. To narrow down possibilities you need to make inferences from the rules the game gives you. To do this you need to constantly contrapose or make conditional chains through finding common variables.

2. Logic Chains (Advanced)

This is an advanced strategy for In-and-Out Games. “Contraposition” and “contrapose” are just taking a conditional and making them contrapositives (flipping them and inverting).

Note: This is an advanced video of contrapositional jujitsu. She introduces the concept of the Logic Chain. Note: if you don’t understand the Logic Chains video, don’t worry. You can circle back to it later and it isn’t necessary for test day.
